Maybe it's because my social media feed is an echo chamber (I follow all sorts so I'm hoping not) but it appears they're slowly edging towards fúcking up their unassailable 80 seat majority.

I'm sceptical and think we've still got 4.5 years of detritus left, but given that we now have a proper opposition and the rest of the nations turning on them, maybe, just maybe they'll be forced to do something right

Its not going to finish, until a vaccine is found, many who avoid getting it now will probably pick it up once restrictions are lifted, this virus is not going to disappear is it, meanwhile the economy is getting destroyed, many are losing there livelihoods, thousand more will die due to not getting early diagnosis and treatment for other types of illness and then we have the major problem of really bad leadership.


I trust the virologists. Oxford, Imperial, Karolinska, Robert Koch and Charité for example. They want the critical R value down to 0.3 to make the virus more manageable before unlocking and they are the fecking experts. It’ll cost the economy more in the long run if there’s a second wave and subsequent lockdown. Then there’s this which sums it up.

Dr David Hepburn, an intensive consultant in Wales, tweeted: “Just watched the conga lines/street parties on the news. The nation has lost its fecking mind. We’re strapping in for the second wave. “I’m so, so tired, and so pissed off. We’ve had a few days of respite and I was starting to feel hopeful. Can’t believe I was so naïve.”

Same in Germany Dr Hepburn. Stupidity knows no boundries.

Oldman overacts his way through the whole thing. It’s what he does. John Lithgow was a much better Churchill in The Crown.


I thought Oldman was very good. However the script took massive liberties with historical fact, which is very disturbing, considering many people will have viewed this as factual.
The underground scene was pure fiction and painted Churchill as a sympathetic man of the people, which he certainly wasn't. Not much man of the people about him when he sent armed troops against striking Welsh miners.
The plotting of Halifax and Chainberlin was also fiction. And the main impetus for resisting Hitler in those fateful few days came from Atlee and the Labour party. Atlee had already seen first hand in Spain what the combined forces of European fascism were capable of. Forces of fascism aided and abetted by the British Tory Party covertly at every turn, I might add.

May as well have put the testcard on for 10 minutes.
So Boris' statement to the nation was only for Engerland. What he said did not apply to us whatsoever.
So all we have is extended allowance for excerise, and the odd trip to a garden centre, or Costa or KFC, all of which was outlined by Drayford on Friday.

Some experts/historians don't think Churchill ordered the troops to fire on the miners, that it was local authorities who did that. Anyway, it was Baldwin who didn't want to intervene in Spain, he apparently feared the spread of Communism. It wasn't just the UK who stayed out of it, 27 countries including France, Germany, Italy and Russia signed a non-intervention pact.
I'm not saying Churchill was a good man, by todays standards anyway. He was a man of his times though and maybe worse than many others but certainly better than a few.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

Confusing is right, but they're all following 'The Science'. Laughable that is. They are taking political decisions on the bits of 'The Science' that they would prefer to believe. Or in Coward Johnson's case, the bits he thinks will make him personally come out of this best.

I must have misunderstood this (I didn't watch, just reading a summary), but did he really say that you can drive to beauty spots to walk? If he did, that just means you can drive anywhere, whenever you want.

I'm sure more details will emerge, made up onthe hoof, shaped entirely by the response he gets and what he thinks sets him in the best light. That may no bad thing if policy ends up being shaped by more sensible people than Dombo and Dumbo.

The way i saw his statement, he's basically given carte blance to people in England. I would think the Welsh police forces are going to be well peeved off with that, considering the Welsh stance on this virus, compared to the English.. Next time the weather picks up, they will be run off their feet. :(

A non agression pact! Italy had 50,000 troops in Spain fighting for Franco, and the Germans treated it as a military laboratory, practicing and perfecting terror bombing (you've heard of the Condor Legion and Guernica, have you?)and the Panzer blitzkreig.

And what bloody party do you think Baldwin represented?

By the way, as much as I despise Tories, I think Britain was lucky to have Churchill. The right man for the moment, a real leader. The complete antithesis of that fat cowardly ponce currently occupying No. 10.

“ did he really say that you can drive to beauty spots to walk? ”

No. He said you could get in your car to go somewhere for exercise. But we’ve been able to drive to get to somewhere to exercise for weeks now in England. So there’s absolutely no change other than before there was a time limit type thing (your drive had to be for less time than your exercise) and now there doesn’t seem to be other than common sense.

The thing is, if you live in London, for example, it’s far safer to drive out somewhere and have a walk than for 9 million of us to be tramping round the streets and same parks.

Well for clarity I think the UK should be under one umbrella as far a the rules go, then there would be no confusion. You could argue of course that as we have a smaller population, with smaller densities the rules could be relaxed to a greater extent here in Wales, not saying it should be.However, it seems like we are not a United Kingdom in all of this.
To answer your question, the situation is clear, you will not be allowed to take a spin, from England into Wales, so the police may have problems, but do have the powers to prosecute and or fine, those who do come over the border.

Germany’s R value is above 1 according to the Robert Koch Institute. And they are starting football matches again.

We’ve an R value far less than that apart from certain settings (care homes in particular but hospitals as well). The R value in Wales at present is, apparently, higher than in London.

Agree with the consultant about the VE street party nonsense. It was ridiculous.

How can you possibly catch it if you all stay at home?
Someone has to be going out to catch it to bring it home, or someone infected is visiting them.
The logic leaves a lot to be desired, but the data comes from a survey, so not very reliable.
Viruses don't have legs, they don't have wings and they can't swim, so they can't "invade your home" they need help.
